Is there any way how jekyll would convert .md (markdown) files automatically, without installing and using the jekyll-optional-front-matter plugin?
The weird thing is that I have one local site where this just happens: I have a bunch of .md files and jekyll serves them fine, but none of the files has a front matter section. I am really puzzled why that works. I thought it shouldn’t should it?
This is the site where this happens: https://gatenlp.github.io/gateplugin-LearningFramework/
If you add the .md extension to any of the non-directory URLs, or index.md to the directory URLs, you will see the original markdown file and that none of these files contains any YAML front matter.
